Gov. Pat Quinn visited DePaul’s Loop Campus Tuesday morning to announce the final installment of the ICCAP grant for the university.

Funds from the grant have been used to help build new buildings on campus such as the Theatre School and Arts and Letters Hall. According to the Illinois Board of Higher Education, DePaul will have received an estimated $11.9 million in total funding from the ICCAP grant.

With exactly one week until election day, Quinn’s brief 10-minute speech focused on the value of education and the importance that education be accessible to everyone in Illinois.

    This is a bunch lies! Donating $12 million to a private university so that they can spend $100 million, mostly of student tuition money, on two extravagant buildings is NOT going to make education any more accessible to residents of Illinois! This will only raise tuition more!

    DePaul pays out an administrative team of less than 50 more than $100 million annually, but only pays out a faculty of 2,000 $115 million annually. Divide it up, you’ll see where your tuition money REALLY goes.

    Pat Quinn is full of shit.
